Cory Doctorow on Aaron Swartz

My perspective is that Mr. Swartz was not a "martyr"... in the sense that, say, a Jesus Christ or a Martin Luther King. Rather, I just see him as some trust fund kid/wannabe-hero who just happened to have some mental issues. And when things got too hot in the kitchen he took the easy way out.

This "empathic" filter does not grow spontaneously; it is actively nurtured and educated by your mind, should you elect to use it. I recommend that you do.

You disgusted me as well. Not because you're "not politically correct", but because you're a pig with no empathy.
